skin color had something to do with why police were called and how they reacted. >> i was like one of the few caucasian people at the party, so i think it might have had something to do with racism. i was scared that someone was going to get shot and possibly killed. >> reporter: the image that upset so many the most is this one. >> on your face! >> reporter: corporal eric casebolt getting rough with a teenage girl in a bikini. casebolt was named officer of the year in 2008, but just a year earlier was accused in a federal lawsuit of racial profiling and excessive force during a drug search. albert brown jr., who is african-american, says casebolt and other officers slammed his head against the hood of his car. police did find drugs. the lawsuit was dismissed. >> what do we want? >> reporter: family sies marching the streets here calling for casebolt's dismissal are getting some satisfaction tonight. steve osunsami, abc news, texas.

cordon off the whole area. the killers on the lam since saturday. these people who live near the prison tell us they had a close encounter with the men right after they broke out. so, they are just there in your backyard? >> yes, they were looking around a little bit, walking in our backyard, and people don't walk in backyards around here. >> reporter: still scared, they asked us not to share their names. >> lucky to be alive, man. like, they could have done anything. >> reporter: tonight, still so many questions about how sweat and matt got those power tools to drill through a wall, cut through pipes and saw open a manhole. prison officials saying all their power tools have been accounted for. there have been no arrests. but police are still talking to people on the inside. including this woman, joyce mitchell, a training supervisor working in the prison's tailor shop. police think the prisoners are capable of anything. matt, convicted of breaking a man's neck with his bare hands. but in prison, good behavior. sources say both men were housed

criminal, the 73-year-old dennis hastert, once second in line to the presidency, made his way through security before being booked, fingerprinted and entering a plea of not guilty. he declined to answer my questions. mr. hastert, brian ross from abc. is there anything at all you want to say, sir? the charges against hastert date back to the time he was a popular high school wrestling coach and allegedly sexually abused a male student. the indictment says he paid his victim, identified only as individual "a," $1.7 million in hush money in cash to keep his secret from coming out. and federal officials say there was more than one abuse victim. >> do you have anything to say? >> i think people need to stop and remember that these boys were 14, 15, 16 years old. >> reporter: jolene burdge told abc news she's been waiting for this day for decades, ever since her late brother, steve reinboldt, told her that hastert had molested him when he served as the wrestling team's student equipment manager.
>> he damaged steve, i think, more than any of us will ever know. >> reporter: the charges against hastert have raised other questions about how he amassed millions of dollars as a congressman and later a lobbyist and came to own two sprawling homes. we saw him monday with his wife, jean, at their place in illinois, along with one of their two sons, josh, the man with the tattoos, who himself became a well-paid washington lobbyist while his father was the speaker of the house. hastert could face up to ten years in prison. today, the former speaker surrendered his passport, posted a $4,500 bond and then went home, appearing very much to be a broken man. david? >> brian ross live in chicago for us. brian, thank you. a major development tonight in the movie theater massacre. the trial of james holmes coming to a halt today. three jurors dismissed by the judge, accused of discussing the case outside of court, something they are under strict orders not to do. there is also a new development in that case of road

gotten their bad cholesterol low enough, and those people who have side effects from statins. for those groups, it could be the way to go. but, david, one estimate, this drug may cost $7,000 to $12,000 a year. >> very expensive. and you've got to go to the doctor twice a month to get it. all right, dr. besser with us tonight, thanks. to other news tonight, some tense moments in the nation's capital today. two bomb threats called in, one targeting the white house briefing room cleared for a time as bomb-sniffing dogs inspected. across town, meanwhile, at the capitol, a bomb threat there forced the evacuation of a tsa hearing. no world on whether the two threats were related. no bombs were found. the president and the first family were not evacuated. we turn overseas tonight and to iraq now and the urgent new fight to contain isis now armed with u.s. weaponry, tanks, missiles and more, abandoned by the iraqi army fleeing as isis seized their cities. abc's chief global affairs correspondent martha raddatz tonight with a look at the american humvees now in the hands of isis tonight. >> reporter: today, iraqi troops
